This is our go to Sandwich shop when we are in Almaden. Great Sandwiches and nice staff. Covid has not crimped their style and service. One of the few places I have gone during SIP!

Yesterday my wife went to pick up two Sandwiches from here. She ordered two Large Sandwiches on Wheat roll, a Italian and a Hook & Latter. When she got home the Hook & Latter sandwich was fine but my sandwich, the Italian was a Mediam on white roll. She called Firehouse and talk to Manager named Juan. He stated that it was her fault that she didn't clearly tell his staff the order with her mask on. And that she should have checked her receipt before she had left the place. Then Juan said with a bit of a altitude, you Got what you paid for so what do you expect me to do about it, then hung up on my wife. We will not be going back to Firehouse Subs again. There are other Sandwich Shops closer to our place and we do not recommend to our family and friends to go here.

Excellent sandwich, great flavor and meaty. I have taken a few people whom never tried Firehouse subs and they loved the sandwich. They replied they would never go to Togo's again! If its your first time make sure you add the oil&vinegar sauce, double yummy.

Waited about 10 minutes for a employees family member to stop complaining about her job. Ordered my food. Serve time was good but im allergic to pickles and tomatoes. Asked them to remove them from my order. Drove home about 20 minutes away to find pickles and tomatoes in my tuna sandwhich. Had to throw it away. Waste of time and money. Usually have no problems here but not sure i will return after tonights visit.

Always good and always ready on time.

I just heard the manager or assistant manager verbally berate an employee in front of customers and co-workers because he wasn't saying “Welcome to Firehouse” loud enough. She threatened to write him up if he wasn't loud enough. Maybe this employee is shy, maybe there's underlying issues? I refuse to support a business that treats its employees like this. Last visit to this firehouse for me!

It's so delicious. I had a cousin come into town and asked me to take him back here. Prices were fair. If it was closer to my home I would be here often.

I love coming here, good selection of sandwiches, they got salads and several deserts. A bit pricey for a sandwich meal over $15 but they are huge, I can eat a full foot long if I am very hungry otherwise I will eat just half and take the other half home.They also got a huge selection of hot sauces some of them are very spicy so be careful! They also have very friendly staff that can suggest which hot sauce you might like.

Review №21

Ordered the brisket with cheddar (medium), tasty but portion size of meat was small for a 10 inch sub (bad value) . Ordered chili with cheese, had to wait 10 minutes, no problem, when ready it was barely warm with no cheese. Had to go back to the counter to ask for it. Place was just about empty while i was there. This particular location needs attention, I won't be going back to this one any time soon.

How long can it possibly take to make two simple sandwiches when you are the only person in the store? Come to Firehouse subs and find out. So far it's taken 25 minutes...

Ge
Review №25

Needed a change of pace for sandwiches and glad I found this place. Bread is soft and fresh. Price is a little high for the portions, but well worth it because the taste and service. The meatball sub had just the right spice, hot and melted cheese. Will have to go back to try the other subs and soups.

Review №26

I call this place the anti-Subway. They pack everything to the brim with meat and every other ingredient as opposed to just filling it with a pound of lettuce. If you're looking for a hearty and filling option then this is the sandwich place to go.

De
Review №27

The sandwich was pretty good but very expensive for what it was. I got a medium which was still a little small and didn't have very much meat on it. The sandwich alone was ten bucks and then chips and drink another four with tax I was in it for 15 bucks and left not very pleased....took longer than expected to make the sandwich as well

Je
Review №28

Excellent Subs but, just wish they had more than chips to go with it! Would be great with some coleslaw or potato salad or ????

Ja
Review №29

Great salad, but not nearly enough dressing for a serving of that size. Also several points deducted for getting orders wrong. Up sold mushrooms on sandwich, but they were missing. Salad was supposed to include salami with the chicken (it didn't) and lastly, mayo wasn't listed as an ingrediant on one sandwich, but was included. All relatively minor items which the staff were happy to rectify, but higher marks are earned if we don't have to fix issues with everything we ordered.

Review №31

Add to BBQ Beef Brisket Sandwich which ended up being good. Prices are a little on the high side but reasonable. I like the fact that you can customize your sandwich including wheat bread. They have a fancy soda machine that allows you about 40 different choices. Environment is reasonably nice but nothing fancy.

Review №32

Fantastic! Love the BBQ brisket sandwich, great flavor and good amount of meat ! Staff is friendly enough. Great AC conditioning. Moderate interior seating with much more seating outside. There are a few high chairs but no baby changing tables in the bathroom, what?! Process not too bad for good quality meat. If this was helpful ️

Found a gem! Came in and the counter guy helped us parse the menu. Made his suggestions, and we ordered two of them. Bf ordered smokehouse beef & cheddar brisket. I got the turkey bacon ranch. Both sandwiches we got on white bread. DELICIOUS, both of them. We scarfed them so quickly I didn't have time to take a picture. Love their concept of supporting the public safety foundation as well.

Great sandwiches... if you can get them. The staff at this location need some serious customer service training. Slow, rude, inattentive, did I say rude?

One of my top 3 places for sandwiches. Always fresh tasting and have such a variety of hot sauces available to suit any taste.

There was barely any meat in the brisket and cheddar sandwich, also skip the desserts (brownie was old and crusty).

Review №44

Went in with family. Had an Italian meatball sub and grilled chicken sandwich. Meatball sub tasted really good. Chicken lacked the grilled taste, it barely had any grill marks on it. They have an amazing sauce selection. I would say at least 20-25 different sauces all numbered from 1 to 10 based on its heat level.

A step above the competition, the food dosen't disappoint , the service could use some help, (not very friendly) at the location I stopped by. But otherwise the food is fast and fresh

Review №47

Service is great! Everyone is so friendly! The subs are delicious, but some may be too cheesy. If you don't like cheese to take over the entire sub, ask for less cheese. The cookies are delicious!

My online order didn't print, ok fare enough. The employee grabbed the ticket and I thought he was quickly going to get it done...well 20 min as I watch all the employees chat and laugh and look completely distracted the same employee had forgotten about it and asked for my receipt. He then lied to the manager in front of me saying it was just a misunderstanding.... The manager appologised tried to offer me a free sub, but why bother when I will not be returning to that circus.

Review №77

Wasted 45 minutes of my life. I said something a half hour after ordering and they hadn't even started, this was after watching 5 more sandwiches after me get served. After 45 minutes of waiting for them to complete my order, they give my sandwich to the wrong person. I ended up just getting a refund. Worst food experience I've ever had.

Parking can be difficult at times, and the subs are not cheap, but they are loaded with meat and the staff working here are usually pretty good. I recommend.

Came here for the first time because I had heard so much about it from friends. Ordered an Engineer Sandwich on white and the girl forgot the melted Swiss cheese and the dill pickle on the side (crucial). Of course I didn't realize it until I got home. Won't be coming back.
